Founded in 2010, WP Engine quickly gained the reputation for being premium managed WordPress hosting. In fact, you’ve probably visited some sites that use WP Engine--SoundCloud, FourSquare, National Geographic, PBS, and Yelp are all WP Engine customers. If you recently started a website or are still in the researching phase, you probably came across the term “WordPress”. After all, it is one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) on the internet. Wordpress helps you create a site, customize it, and publish it on the web--and it’s probably easier than you think.
Their 'Starter' Plan Begins Where Most 'Pro' Plans End
If you are one of those people that enjoys the best of everything and doesn’t mind spending extra money to get it, WP Engine may be for you. It is loaded with features allowing you to customize your website to your heart’s desire. That’s not all--there’s advanced security to keep your website safe, updated, and out of the hands of hackers. Cutting-edge technology makes sure your page loads fast and runs exactly the way you want.
Given WP Engine’s features and usability, it is definitely worth the price tag--a startup plan starts at $25 a month when billed annually. Of course, there are also other plans (even customizable ones) based on the needs of your website. This price may seem steep but if you test the features, load speeds, security, etc. against other premium plans, the price is quite a bargain.
So if you are a budding blogger on a budget with no real audience, WP Engine may not be for you. At least not in the beginning stages of your blog.
But, if you are a growing business or online presence, WP Engine is certainly worth considering.
One down side to WP Engine is the company does not register domain names. So you will have to use another service to get a domain name and keep it up to date. Not a big headache, but it did catch us by surprise.
